What is Mechanical Ventilation? How Does it Affect Indoor Air Quality?

While a lot of thought is given to regulating the temperature of the air in your home, there is often less thought given to the quality of that air in terms of particulates, pollution and pathogens. However, home air quality is just as important as air temperature; in some respects, it’s more important. Modern AC/heating systems are designed to not only cool or warm indoor air, but also to keep that air at a minimum level of safe breathability.

One of the primary ways AC/heating systems achieve this minimum air quality standard is through a process known as mechanical ventilation. Mechanical ventilation expels indoor air from the home and replaces it by drawing outdoor air into its place. The process is continuous throughout an AC/heating system’s operation. The ventilation function of modern AC/heating systems is so critical to their operation that “HVAC” stands for “Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.” Indoor air quality can be further improved many times over when the mechanical ventilation of an AC/heating system is paired with an in-duct air filtration system.

In-Duct Air Filtration Depends Mechanical Ventilation

At GVEC, we are proud to offer quality indoor air-filtration solutions that attach directly to the home AC/heating system. However, regardless of the indoor air filtration system used, it needs fresh, outside air brought into the home to deliver maximum benefit. Fortunately, modern HVAC systems, including those sold through GVEC AC/Heating services, are designed with mechanical ventilation.

Add In-Duct Air Filtration for Maximum Air Quality

At GVEC AC/Heating services, we feature AC/heating systems from Champion® and Bryant®, and indoor air-filtration systems from MicroPure® and Reme®. These in-duct systems work hand-in-hand with your AC/heating unit’s mechanical ventilation to kill air- and surface-borne pollutants inside your home. Whether you choose the MicroPure Total Home Active Air Purifier and or the Reme Halo, either system helps create a healthier living space for your family.
